ABOUT YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER
Hey guys I’m Laurin! I’m the face behind the camera here at Hills Photography Studios!
I am a God fearing woman who believes in the power of prayer and I strive to help others in any way that I can. I believe that when we LOVE like Jesus LOVED, lives are changed for the better. I believe we should help each other when it is needed and we should pray for others more than we pray for ourselves. I am passionate about using my God given talent of photography as a tool to help others!
I am a mother of a beautiful little girl named Elizabeth! She is honestly the BEST because she has taught me to love on a whole different level. Sure there are tough times and sure I’m typically running off of way too much coffee and may be rocking the struggle bun for the 5th day in a row, but I wouldn’t trade this life for the world!
I have a wonderful husband whom I love dearly. He’s my rock and keeps me steady amongst the waves of daily life. He is the yin to my yang and believes in me 110%. He pushes me to be better in life, not just as a person but as a partner, a mother, and an entrepreneur. He’s the genius behind all of my marketing and branding! He’s also my AMAZING stage hand and our company videographer! You'll get to meet him below.
I have two small dogs who drive me completely crazy at times, but I wouldn’t trade them for anything! They are both rescues and have been a part of my family for nearly 10 years. I am a firm believer in rescuing over purchasing an animal. There are entirely too many homeless pets to justify purchasing a “new puppy” over rescuing one from a shelter in my opinion.
I started this business to drive my passion for creating this art! I love meeting new clients and potential new clients. I also enjoy meeting other creatives in this industry! Photography has brought me so many lasting relationships in this industry. I have had the opportunity to meet so many wonderful people through my craft.
I have been a photographer for over 14 years! I have a passion for this art form and I absolutely LOVE being behind the camera! I have attended too many styled shoots to count and I have hosted countless more. I have had many images published, but my absolute favorite feature to date is a ring shot of mine featured by Kay Jewelers! I love getting to capture a moment and freeze it in time forever. I want to capture moments for my clients so that they have a return ticket to an event or time that would otherwise be lost forever. When it comes to posing I love the art of finding the perfect angle for someone! The perfect positioning that makes my client look and feel incredible!
I photograph everything from merchandise images for local business owners to weddings for my brides to be, however, my specialty is couples photography! Bellies, engagements and weddings are my absolute favorite events to photograph. I adore being able to capture a bride at her most exciting moment. The teardrops that form in a grooms eyes as he sees his bride for the first time. The kiss on the cheek as her father gives her away. I aim to capture images that my couples future children will look at and fantasize over throughout their lifetime. I want my clients future children to look back at their parents wedding albums and smile and think “gosh I can’t wait to find my person.” The glow of a new mommas skin while she carries that bundle of joy in her perfectly rounded belly. The sweet nothings whispered into a woman’s ear from the man who adores her. The gentle touches in a warm, loving embrace. My passion is to capture not only the events taking place but the feeling of them! I want my clients to not only look at a photograph and smile but to actually re-live that moment when holding that photograph.
I am a product focused photographer! I believe my clients should have products placed in their hands to treasure for years and not just digital files that take up space on your computer! All of my session packages come with prints! I offer full printing services from prints, to canvases and albums. I also offer various products, such as metal prints, image cubes, and custom cups!
I would love to help you capture memories to last a lifetime! I promise you are going to cherish the memories we create for you and your family!
